Actually Passable Card Ideas
« on: March 22, 2020, 06:20:25 pm »

Anything that's too good for RBCI goes here.  Bonus points if you already posted it in RBCI previously.

Audience
Way

(Once per turn) You may play an Action card from your hand twice.

I'm sure I have more.  I love whimsical concepts and workable mechanics, but this one was extremely straightlaced, aside from breaking a naming convention.

Not sure this one really adds enough to be worth including, but whatever:

Way of the Dove
Way

If this is an Attack, +1 VP.
Otherwise:
 +1 Card
 +1 Action

Play-as-cantrip ability alone makes it quite usable without Attacks on the board.

What about "Way of the Cheetah"?

I just like the way it's named now.  I don't believe in "Way of the [animal]" as a hard rule.  It's also very descriptive and easy to remember what it does.

When you buy this, you may overpay for it. If you do, set this aside, and at the start of your next turn, play a non-Duration Action card from the Supply costing up to per you overpaid, leaving it there.
Here's one that, with the help of Minotaur and my general stupidity when it comes to card designing, ended up kinda nice, if I do say so myself. An overpay Band of Misfits!

Fair enough. Though I did think of an even better animal. Cheetah was because of their speed, but better yet:

Seems kind of weak, but maybe there are finesse plays where you will know what you want next turn.

If the naming convention were enforced, I'd pick that.

Why is it a duration?

I currently imagine mail-mi wearing a dark trenchcoat and a bowler hat, hunched over a bit, toothpick in his mouth, holding a gun in his pocket.  One bead of sweat trickling down his nose.

I'm assuming the on-buy causes it to stay in play "until it stops doing something" like a Duration card, but it's not quite worded clearly.

Yeah, that was my thought process. Although I see now that it doesn't actually need to be, like Horse Traders.

Which makes sense, as we tend to use possessives when talking about cards, such as Young Witch's bane.

I fixed the Haven't issue a few versions ago. Sadly I had to do it by manually looking for "Haven't" and ignoring it; because we DO want apostrophes to count as end-of-word normally.

There were versions that didn't care about capitalization, or even having an end-of-word at all, but that led to way too many false positives.

Ok, I have too many to go through, but I found this one.  (The "start of cleanup phase" clause was a change to prevent infinite combos with tokens or whatever):

Split pile, 5/5.

Town Drunk
Action-Reserve
Cost: $3

Place this on your Tavern mat.
-------------
You may Call this during your turn for +$2.


Bartender
Action
Cost: $5

+1 Card
+1 Action
At the start of your cleanup phase, you may put a Reserve card in play onto your Tavern mat.

Printing Press - Action
Draw as many cards as you can
Discard 10 cards

(Not sure how much that ought to cost, nor whether 10 is the right number, but the concept seems sound.)

I feel like this is turning into another RBCI now.  As I type this, I'm super tempted to post Stonks here, even though it's a bit too silly for APCI.  I mean, it would be a playable and somewhat interesting card, but I also don't think it adds enough to the game to justify its existence in real life, either.

I had a modern-themed satirical Dominion set a while ago called DimOnion:  Modern Times.  My favorite is Google, which would need an appropriate re-theme to be a vanilla Dominion card.  But here it is:

Google
Action
Cost: $4

Reveal a card from your hand.  Name a cheaper card.  Reveal cards from your deck until you find a copy of the cheaper card.  Put it in your hand and discard the others.


Bonus:
Kids These Days
Action
Cost: $2

+1 Card
+1 Action
Each player may trash a card from their hand to gain a cheaper card into their hand.
